Why should my child receive an assessment?

Psychological evaluations provide standardized data to help parents, school staff, and other treatment providers understand the many components of your child’s functioning. An assessment provides a baseline for current cognitive abilities, academic problems and strengths, difficulties relating to others, vocational concerns, and emotional experience.

Consider a psychological assessment for your child if you’d like insight to diagnose ADHD, Mood Disorders (e.g. anxiety and depression), Autism Spectrum Disorder, Developmental Delays, Sensory Issues, Learning Disorders (e.g. Dyslexia), Memory Problems, Learning Difficulties, Giftedness, Personality Disorders, and more.

Psychological Assessments can be a valuable tool to assist with IEP goal planning, giftedness, accommodations for standardized testing, early entrance to kindergarten, and understanding developmental delays.

What is the evaluation process and how long does it take?
